Matthew 3:1-17 Matthew's is the more familiar account of Jesus' baptism. Here we see that Jesus willingly goes to the place where sinners have gathered to be washed of the filth of their sins. This shows Jesus as The One who meets us at the very place place of repentance.
The false gods of religion would have us to summit high mountains; burn incense or perform works in order to try and merit forgiveness. But with Jesus we see The God Man meet repentant sinners right where they are. Jesus has arrived, to seek and to save all who repent and seek God's forgiveness.
